Swimming In The Rain!

Somerset House was supposed to be the main attraction this evening for the open-air cinema. The Film4 Summer Screen has returned to the Edmond J Safra Fountain Court at Somerset House and we were heading there to watch Alfred Hitchcock's Strangers on a Train.

As the showing wasn't until later in the evening we headed to the West End to see what was available over Oxford Street. As we arrived at Oxford Circus, the skies opened and the rain poured down, flooding the streets and made for a miserable night. Like cowards we found shelter in Uniqlo but the conditions were persistent so we headed to a restaurant to dry. We also had to decide whether an open-air cinema was ideal considering that there was no cover and that we were already soaked.

After much debate we decided that we would travel home, it was disappointing not to experience the Film4 Summer Screen but I'm sure we will get opportunities in future. The journey home was entertaining although not exactly straight forward!!!
